REVISED CALL FOR PAPERS Deadline for Proposal Submission is 31 January 2014 Please read carefully and visit the site.

Dear PRSA Community

I hope that this message finds you well. I am writing on behalf of the Puerto Rican Studies Association to remind you to join us at the 11th Biennial PRSA Conference to be celebrated in Denver, Colorado between 23 and 26 October 2014. This year’s themeBoricuas/Lati@s in Global Flux: Shifting Spaces of Inflection promises to foster a critical and intellectually stimulating dialogue on the global status and mobility of Puerto Ricans. For a copy of the revised call for papers please use the following link:

2014PRSA Biennial Conference Call for Papers (Revised)

In response to several requests, we have decided to extend the deadline for the submission of proposals until 31 January 2014.

In addition, and in response to numerous requests, we have also decided to provide a waiver of the requirement to become a PRSA member in order to participate in a panel organized by a member in good standing. In other words, while the panel organizer needs to be a member in good standing of PRSA to submit a proposal, this year we will enable the panel organizer to invite non-members to participate without requiring the new attendees to become members. Panel organizers interested in taking advantage of this policy change need to contact me at before submitting their proposals. Of course, given that all membership fees are used to subsidize the costs of the biennial conference, we encourage all participants to become members of PRSA.

For more information, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. We look forward to seeing you in Denver, Co in 2014.

Saludos Siempre,
Charles R. Venator-Santiago
